VM Workstation 5 to VSphere 5?

EE,

Hello again, I zipped up an entire VM folder containing the VMDK and .vmx file and importing it into a vSphere 5 environment.

Can someone tell me exaclty what needs to happen or send a link containing sop or step by step? Is there an easier way than using converter?

Thanks again in advance

if it's VMware Workstation 5.0 you will need to convert VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 5.1.

Crap we have Converter 5.0. Will that work? We don't have seem to need the 5.1 upgraded feature set like GPT functionality etc.
